Attempts to figure out who will direct the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII have largely been dead ends, with rumors falling apart and more directors taking themselves out of the running than actually expressing interest. So with Lucasfilm still playing those cards very much close to the vest, why not pursue something a bit easier to figure out: who will write it? Ok, yes, we already know that Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine writer Michael Arndt will handle the scripting duties for Episode VII, but the news is not just that there will be another Star Wars movie, but that there will be three. Couldn't they potentially be putting together the entire trilogy right now to get the movies made as quickly as possible? And wouldn't even a writer as talented as Arndt need some help making that happen? That seems to be the theory, at least, behind »
